Post Matric Scholarship Scheme for OBC students by Govt. of Haryana

Even after many years of independence and in spite of various measures taken to improve the level of education in the country, literacy levels among backward classes continues to be extremely low. It has been recognized now that education and economic support for backward classes has not been adequate and there is disparity between them and the non-backward sections of the population at every level. In view of the same, it is felt that earnest efforts are required to introduce various new schemes specifically for these target group i.e. backward classes to provide them a level playing field in comparison to non-backward sections of the population. Because of this the Directorate of Social Welfare is implementing the following Schemes for the Students belonging to OBC Communities of the State of Haryana.
